Mrs. Parry was born on July 9, 1937 in Nashville, Georgia, to Mallie Lee Sirmons and J. Mitchell Sirmons, and was preceded in death by her husband Frank James Parry in 1992. She met Frank “Mike” while he was stationed at Moody AFB, Georgia. He was retired from the U.S. Air Force and the Army Corps of Engineers. Mrs. Parry was a devoted mother and dedicated military spouse and accompanied him on all assignments – Moody AFB, GA, Travis AFB, CA, Myrtle Beach AFB, SC, Offutt AFB, NE, Taiwan, Andrews AFB, MD, Elmendorf AFB, AK and McCoy AFB, FL.

Mrs. Parry enjoyed surf fishing, cooking, gardening, sewing and embroidery and had a special bond with her daughter Micki who has been her sole caretaker for many years. Her favorite pets over the years were a dachshund named “Ribbitt”, a dachshund named “Taz” and currently a beloved gray tabby cat named “Baby” who will be cared for by her daughter Micki.

A special thank you to friends and caregivers that assisted in Marlene’s care over the last few years. Due to the COVID19 pandemic no service is currently planned. The family is planning a future service for close friends and family.

I will miss Marlene so much, she was like a second Mother to me for over 30 years. She had the ability to relate to any problem and knew just what to say to make you feel better. I will continue to cherish the great memories and fun times we had over the years, Blizzard of 93 and Balderdash, to name a few. Prayers for Micki, Sandy, Jennifer and family.
